Hatch emblem

Was just wondering what people do as far as redoing their rear hatch VW emblem. Mines the stock one with the black background and chrome lettering right now. I was looking to go with gloss black lettering instead. Do people just paint them or buy and replace them with ones off ebay or amazon?

How are they to get off and on? Does the "VW" portion just pop off?

Yep. The rear is pretty straight forward. There's a notch along the bottom where you can stick a small [protected] tool to begin separating.

The front kicked my ass. I had to read the DIY and watch a couple youtube videos. I eventually got it. It's a bit tricky.

I broke my rear one in half, so be careful if you want to keep it. Front has a ton of clips and you're guaranteed to break a few. As a common theme with this car removing or breaking clips don't seem to affect the fitment all that much so I wouldn't be worried.

Tip for rear is to use a card(one you don't care about) get it under the bottom(i believe that's where the notch to start is)and slowly move it around till it pops off.. Haven't broken a tab yet..
I have bought emblems but enjoy just repainting it to a color I like, for the back I buy a colored piece of vinyl and lay it under and cut out the notches here's a pic of an old color I had matching across with my wheels/grill etc.



Currently it's CSG to match the body/front grill stripes/emblem, with a shiny black vinyl under because it looks like faded plastic without it.

So I found the ones I want off ebay but most of the listings for the color(s) I want are saying for MK7, will an MK7 badge fit Mk6 as well?

The front is different for sure. I'm not sure about the rear. Probably different

Agreed. I don't think the placement of the notches are the same I looked forever and finally settled on customizing it myself, much more satisfying and then you don't run into everyone else with the same eBay emblem color haha just do a fine grit sand and a couple coats incase of rocks

Went with csg. Front emblem was a pain to remove. Never quite got it back the same after removing second time to repaint.

If you're gonna paint it at least get an inlay to match your cars paint. Looks a lot better than a big black hole on the back of your car.
